Sunday night had the premiere of NBC's new Sunday drama lineup and the results were not too impressive, as expected. Believe followed up its solid 2.7 demo premiere after The Voice to a 1.5 demo in its timeslot premiere. No surprise, it took a huge drop after the preview episode indicating that people didn't like what they saw in the preview episode and were unwilling to follow it to a new slot. The same thing happened with Intelligence on CBS in January. At 10pm was the premiere of Crisis. The good news is it actually built on Believe's demo which means it was a bit of a self-starter. The bad news is it still had a very low number that's likely to drop from here. I feel like NBC might have been better off airing Crisis as the preview show behind The Voice because it may have a little bit more upside.

Resurrection had a strong second week for ABC. But first on the alphabet network, America's Funniest Home Videos was down six tenths in viewers and even in the demo from its last new airing back in January. Not bad at all considering Daylight Savings. At 8pm, Once Upon a Time was up a tenth in viewers and even in the demo. This show seems a little bit revitalized since its winter hiatus. Week two of Resurrection was down 2.6 million viewers and seven tenths in the demo. While that's a big drop, last week had a huge premiere so it's not unexpected. It still posted big numbers and it seems to be having a halo effect on the whole night for ABC. At 10pm, Revenge was down four tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo. It has poor retention but so far seems to be a big improvement in the 10pm timeslot. ABC was wise to switch the originally planned slots for Resurrection and Revenge. 

FOX's animated was all up slightly: Bob's Burgers and American Dad! were up two tenths in the demo, The Simpsons were up three tenths in the demo, and Family Guy was up a tenth. Cosmos: A Spacetime Oydssey held up very well in week two. It was down eight tenths in viewers and just a tenth in the demo from last week's premiere. CBS started with 60 Minutes up six tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo. At 8pm, The Amazing Race was down two tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. This show is having a weak cycle so far. At 9pm, The Good Wife was down half a million viewers and even in the demo. The Mentalist closed out the night down 1.3 million viewers and three tenths in the demo. Not a good performance for a show that didn't get an early pickup from CBS.
